Conshohocken, PA, May 3, 2005 — IPR International, a leader in data protection and recovery, today announced that it won the Midsize Enterprise Innovation Award™ for Best Presentation at the Midsize Enterprise Summit held on April 17-20 in New Orleans, Louisiana. This award recognizes creativity in the design, content and delivery of the company’s mid-market message to IT decision-makers through presentations delivered at the conference.
The Midsize Enterprise Innovation Awards are the only awards voted on solely by the attending Senior IT Executives. A Midsize Enterprise Innovation Award signifies that attendees recognize a company’s level of excellence and contribution to the event.
“We are honored to be recognized with this award from the Midsize Enterprise Summit Senior IT Executive attendees,” said Michael Emmi, Chairman and CEO of IPR International. “IPR is pleased by the overwhelmingly positive reception of our innovative presentation about the importance of data backup and recovery. It is a testament to our unique vision of data backup and recovery as well as our service-based approach to helping companies protect their data and achieve true operational resilience.”
IPR’s presentation, “Recovery First” presided over by Dr. Jerry Smith, IPR’s Chief Technology Officer, helped attendees understand common issues in today’s flawed approaches to backup and recovery. Taking a folksy, common-sense approach much like a television talk show, Dr. Jerry interviews several guest panelists about their backup and recovery problems and points out how their problems could be resolved using Dr. Jerry’s 10 Laws of Recovery.
